A sincere apology to Martin O'Donnel.

I'm sorry man, but the main theme of Halo 4 takes the cake as the most haunting, powerful Halo theme to date. Your music was good, no doubt; but I'm sure you, with the rest of Bungie, are at least a little less stressed about the hands the Halo franchise has fallen into.

    I sure hope that I don't have to feel guilty for liking Halo 4. What a pointless mindscrew thad be. Bungie has always let me cheat on her with other games before, so what if it's her old roommate. or something. i'm not apologizing Marty. =)

  • I respect your opinion, but you have to apologize to Marty once again. It's 'ODonnel[u]l[/u].

You're welcome to it, but I vehemently disagree. The opening song of Halo 3 with the male choir, then kicks into the original Halo theme song ..... untouchable. That can still raise the hair on my arms even today the same way that the opening theme of Star Wars at the theater does. That's saying something.

  • I never a big fan of the music in halo or any video game. I just never payed attention to it at all. But playing Halo 4 I realized how good Marty really is. Halo 4's music didn't feel like halo or even sound very appealing. I was disappointed in the lack of great music. I never really realized how much the music in a video game can effect the campaign. Marty is by far the best composer in any video game company.

  • No way, the only thing that I like about Halo 4 so far is the campaign. I'm not keen on the music, the MM is awful and to be honest Halo is just not 'Halo' without the word 'BUNGiE' in there some where. Marty, your music gave me a cold chill through my bones, it made my hair stick up on end like pins.. your music was awesome.

    I actually agree with you, OP. The mood of Halo 4 was set and defined perfectly by Neil's music. 4's soundtrack is my favorite so far, and the remix CD is awesome as well. Nothing will ever replace the warmth in Marty's music, but Neil really knocked Halo 4's soundtrack out of the park. Audio effects, however, go to Marty. The weapons sound amazing in Halo 4 and the bass is awesome, but the vehicles sound like a fork stuck in a blender. [Edited on 11.10.2012 1:12 PM PST]

  • I like 343's music, but I also enjoy the use of old Halo music in different parts of the game. But yes, I think the opening menu music is fantastic. Reminds me of Battlestar Galactica's opening music.

  • Music in Halo 4 never really stood out for me. The piece of Halo music that stands out the best in my mind is when you are flying the heretic banshee in Halo 2.

  • The Halo 4 score was good, but for me Marty's music is still my favorite game music of all time, the effect it had and has on me when I listen to it puts it on the same level as Mozart, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Bach, timeless and nerve striking, no matter how many times I played the games or listened to it on it's own, even now remembering back my heart pounds and my I feel energized to fight on. When starting up Halo 4, I found something missing, the music seemed....acceptable, but not the kick ass experience I've had with Halo: CE, Halo 2 and Halo 3. Now later on in the game the music improved, and became a decent accompaniment to the combat and emotions of the story, but even still never struck a never like Marty's tracks, and too often it seemed repetitive. Marty's music is a 10/10 for me, it sets the standard for excellence that all others are compared to. Halo 4's music is an 8, generally quite enjoyable, good in the game, but not memorable. Perhaps it will grow on me if I play the campaign more, but to be honest half of what drove me to replay Halo: CE for PC over and over and over was the feeling I got as the music lifted me up and fueled my slaughter. The same is true of Halo 2 and 3. Now I'm feeling nostalgic and frustrated that Marty isn't doing Halo music anymore. Both Marty and Cortana gone, This Is Not Your Father's Halo.

  • the menu theme is quite a bit like avatar. Marty's music had THAT videogame feel, and it was not at all cheesy, halo 4 is just trying to be dramatic, it's not bad, but it's not the best.

  • Halo 3/ H3 ODST had some incredible music, I've owned the H3 score for over 2 years and I've not gotten tired of listening to it.

  • I've never found myself annoyed at Marty's music when having to retry a section on Legendary. With Halo 4 all I heard was repetitive pulsating melodies whilst trying to concentrate on a Knight when all I had was a silly magnum. It gets just a tad jarring. Also, whoever decided on that [i]awful[/i] warthog noise should be fired. Also, I'm annoyed that Siege of Madrigal played for a couple bars in the credits. Or was that just me? I could have sworn it was the same song. [Just had a listen again, and it seems different to what I remember. Maybe it's just Marty's compositions playing tricks on me.] [Edited on 11.10.2012 11:52 AM PST]
